Description

Dancers, have you ever been frustrated while attempting to enter boneca on Brazilian Zouk timing?

Have you felt overwhelmed trying to understand the difference between dancing “on the quick” vs. “on the slow”?

Quit getting lost on the floor, your roadmap has arrived!

Gain the skills to transpose iconic lambada movements onto “Brazilian Zouk Timing” and vice versa.

Understand which of the four possible timings (yes there are at least four ;) ) accentuate different musical elements.

Demystify the process of switching between timings!

Join me live Tuesdays Nov 22, 29, and December 6, 13!

We will dance and philosophize 5-6:30pm PDT, 6-7:30pm MT

Class 1: Counting, order, and context.

Class 2: Dancing on 1 and 3 with the basics.

Class 3: Dancing on 5 and 7. Using the "quicks" to switch.
